Here's what I observe:

It only crashes when I have installed an Nvidia driver on it (my graphic card's FX 5500). Even installing the latest driver makes no difference. Right now, it doesnt crash since I'm using my boards integrated graphics.

Before my pc shows me the blue screen of death saying something about nv4_disp.dll in an infinite loop. But now it just simply hangs with no further sign of life.

Lastly, can anyone recommend me where else I can ask this same question? Nvidia forums are too damn slow to answer and I cant think of any active tech forums that has lots of users.

I cant stand using integrated graphics, it means no games like Warcraft III and WoW for me! Help!

There are lots of active tech forms Bit-Tech and 3DGM to name just two.

If it BSoD's again write down what is says it will make it alot easier for someone to help you.
Windows general BSoD's due to hardware failure so I am guessing your GPU has failed.

Or take the advice I gave you in the other thread and install the omega drivers which do a lot for you (I don't recall having to choose which card I had, it found it out on it's own)

    Guess you could fit one in there.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    The contacts are there, and the device already has charge control circuitry, but you have to buy and solder the battery yourself.

    If it has a USB port, then you could perhaps try connecting a power bank.

    It has USB-C.
